Urdi: Elaine de Pina wins Klaridad competition at Salão Created in Cabo Verde

Mindelo, Nov 26 (Inforpress) – The architect Elaine de Pina was the winner of the Klaridad design competition, which is part of the ‘Created in Cabo Verde’ Salon at the Craft and Design Fair – Urdi, whose result was published this Thursday in Mindelo.

The architect competed for the “Klaridad – imaginar futuros” with the piece “Barro fresco” which, according to the competitor, aims to meet the need to refresh places in the summer without using electricity.

“As in Cabo Verde families do not have a very high income, I wanted to think in something would solve this heating problem we have, without having to spend electricity,” explained Elaine de Pina, referring to the piece made of clay, with a bottleneck that allows the air to enter hot on one side and come out fresh on the other.

The architect, who expressed herself “very happy” with the result in the construction of her piece, referred its use to building facades, for decoration and various other uses, personalized through this handmade design, which had the partner of the Terra Cota Association, in the ceramic part, and Lizardo Workshops, in the metallic part.
